The Under-18 and Under-16 teams departed for the Dallas area early this morning, meeting at Logan airport for 5 a.m. Several hours later, the group touched down in Texas and reunited with our repeat – by request – bus driver James, who drove the group to the hotel.
After lunch in the hotel lobby, the players and staff headed to their rooms to unpack and unwind.
Later, the trip really kicked off with dinner at one of the teams’ favorite restaurants. Upon return to the hotel, the U18s and U16s met separately to discuss plans for tomorrow.
Both teams are in action on Monday, when the U16s take on Internationals (Ohio) in their first Showcase game, before the U18s play their first playoff match against the Dallas Texans.
